Extraordinary pictures show Kim Il-sung Square in the capital Pyongyang packed with pious North Koreans shouting slogans and waving banners.
Raising their fists in salute to Kim, demonstrators hailed his explosive denunciation of Trump square in terrifying display of nationalist fervour.
It’s a question because the US does not recognize that the morality of Islam is inverted. Good is bad and bad is good. Therefore, he felt that beheading his co-worker was the right thing to do. Non-Muslims must never “oppress” Muslims by being over them in any way – not even at work. Women cannot be over men – this is humiliating and demands redress. Killing his kafir oppressor guarantees the favor of Allah.

Hearings for Liberal MP Iqra Khalid’s “anti-Islamophobia” motion M-103 have begun and after only a few days of testimony, things are already getting downright disturbing.
The comments mark the first official timetable for when the United States will begin resettling up to 1,250 people held in Australian-run centers on Nauru and Papua New Guinea’s Manus island as part of a refugee swap deal struck by former U.S. President Barack Obama late last year.

And, with Chuseok just around the corner (aren’t you excited?), Korean Air pilots threaten a strike:
Pilots at flag carrier Korean Air on Thursday threatened to go on a weeklong strike just as millions of Koreans forward to holiday abroad over the long Chuseok break.
The Korean Air pilots’ union said it notified its employer that 390 pilots will take part in the strike.
But the airline is designated as an essential public service, so only a certain portion of its 2,300 pilots can strike at once without risking jail. And the airline must maintain 80 percent of international flights, 70 percent of flights to Jeju Island and 50 percent of domestic flights.
That still leaves a wide margin for chaos and ruined breaks in a country with notoriously short holidays and excessive working hours.
Chuseok is like Korean Thanksgiving. To put this strike in context, imagine Air Canada pilots going on a strike a week before Christmas. But, because this is South Korea and not Canada, people won’t grumble; they’ll do something about it and it won’t be nice.
